of the united states. >> there is a coordinated effort to make it about romney and whether or not he should speak. whether or not he should say anything about it. whether or not it is presidential for romney. we're only supposed to have one president now. at times like this. well, we don't have one unless romney speaks up. >> jennifer: so they were so happy. mission accomplished! for them. and therein lies the problem. while president obama and secretary clinton spoke about the crisis with steady, seriousness, they exuded calm, they had clarity and strength, mitt romney, by contrast, was prematurely hyperventilating, maybe in response to the most extreme voices in his party. his campaign was in panic mode. and an international crisis was brewing and who did he listen to? could it have been the likes of rush limbaugh and laura ing graham and other neocons on his team? president obama was presidential and strong. mitt romney and paul ryan looked like bit players in top radio's amateur hour. stature, diplomacy steadiness?

of the united states, my father my hero, joe biden. [ cheers and applause ] >> i move to suspend the roll and nominate by acclaimation joe biden as the vice presidential candidate.

is not enough to get him elected president of the united states, so he had to start off where he did, which was reforming and explaining the damage that has been done to the republican party and letting us know who he is. without doing that the next six weeks are completely unimportant to him. so we expect to see a little bit of a bump. one of the things i wanted to add, though this bump he receive is coming before barack obama speaks next week. he is a fabulous speaker. people like his wife and children, and the fact he is so supportive of women's rights in the workplace and reproductive rights, so i would think we would see any bump that mitt romney got this week probably evaporate after next week. >> jennifer: karl one more quick question, romney claimed that republicans had united behind the president following his election. take a quick listen. >> oh, god. >> jennifer: hang on. take a listen. >> romney: americans always come together after elections -- >> jennifer: well, i'm not sure if you caught it all but he was clearly saying that his party has supported the pres
